50 Minute 1:1 Glass Beadmaking Workshop with Lisa Brigham


The introductory glass beading glass is the perfect opportunity to create your own glass beads in a one- on-one setting with a glass artist. It is a two-part class. The first sessions will be your “hands on” time. The second session will focus on cleaning your beads, preparing them for future projects. During the first session, you’ll spend a few minutes getting a basic understanding of the equipment and safety procedures associated with making glass beads.
